election, that's definitely not change. >> president obama also told voters that he would fight hard for them and their families. and if you hope the polls will shed some light on who will win? forget about it. cnn editor paul stein hauser is here to do the math for us. paul, what do the national polls look like? >> two days to go, and we have four polls that are nonpartisan and came out since midnight. let's start with the abc news/"washington post." 48% of likely voters supporting the president. 48% supporting mitt romney. how about nbc news/"wall street journal," pretty much the same story, a 1 percentage point ahd of mitt romney. and pugh research center, they came out with obama with a 3 point advantage. that's within the sampling error. this is just about dead even as we get into the election. >> act what battleground states? >> that's the key here because this is not a popular vote, this is a battle for the states and their electoral votes. we look at those eight battleground states, polls in two of them just came out last night and nee're interesting. this is in des moines, iowa.

last few days before the election, this is the only visit to florida. he'll be spending a lot of his time in ohio for sure, but also in wisconsin and iowa, focusing more on that mid western firewall. because although florida is important and has a lot of electoral votes, the obama campaign sees ohio as essential, and if they can keep it in president obama's column, that's keeping it out of the hands of mitt romney, fred. >> the rival in florida has seen the new legal battle over early voting. tell me more about that. >> reporter: very early this morning, the democratic party of florida filing suit to try and get early voting extended. this is why. early voting was supposed to wrap up yesterday, and there were people waiting in line for hours. in t in the urban parts of southern florida but also in central central florida which is key for president obama. he has a lot of supporters who aren't necessarily reliable voters on election day. african-american voters, latino voters, young voters, so early voting worked to his advantage to give them more time to vote. in 2008, early voegt

experts from europe, middle east, and asia to tell us how the rest of the world sees this election. then i have a panel of distinguished historians, walter isaacson, sean wilentz, and edmund morris to look at an eye to the past. what do past campaigns and past presidents tell us about this nail-biter? also americans might be anxious to learn tuesday's results, but the chinese are even more anxious, perhaps, to learn who their new leaders will be, why they might have more at stake than we do. but first here's my take. whoever wins the election on tuesday, on wednesday either barack obama or mitt romney will have to start worrying about the same urgent challenge, how to stop the united states from falling over the fiscal cliff. this is, of course, the second cliff hanger that the united states has faced in two years, the first being the debt ceiling debacle. how did the world's greatest democracy start functioning so badly? maybe the next president can try to fix this broader problem. but first the fiscal cliff. unless congress acts, the spending cuts and tack increases that would be

how it affects the election, i don't think anybody really knows. obviously we want unfettered access to the polls because we believe that the more people come out, the better we're going to do, and so to the extent that it makes it harder, you know, that's a source of concern, but i don't know how all the politics will sort out. it depends on how scenarios are impacted and so the best thing we can do is focus on how we can help people during this storm and hope that it all clears out and that by the next weekend we'll be free of it and people can focus on the election. >> let me put up a recent abc news-washington post poll for our viewers. the question was who do you trust to do a better job on the economy? posed to likely voters. president obama 44%. governor romney, 51%. why after all this time does governor romney beat president obama when it comes to the question of who could best handle the economy? >> well, first of all, candy, there's a plethora of polls out there. >> a lot of them sort of show this, david. >> i actually prefer the cnn polls. i like the one you put out on fri
